So, Resident Evil 3 isn’t that far away now. In just over a week you’ll finally be able to play it. Though perhaps not with a physical copy, unfortunately.
In a message posted to Twitter, Capcom Europe has revealed that due to restrictions implemented by governments to prevent the spread of coronavirus, the delivery of physical copies of Resident Evil 3 may be delayed.

It’s entirely understandable given the current situation, and Resident Evil 3 will still launch as planned on April 3rd. If you definitely want to play it on that date, however, you might be better switching your physical pre-order to one on a digital marketplace.
If you’re dead-set on having a physical copy of Resident Evil 3, or have a collector’s edition of the game pre-ordered that you don’t want to miss out on, Capcom is advising fans to check with their local retailers for further information. And rest assured, the company is doing the best it can to get copies into warehouses while prioritising the safety of its fans, employees and partners.
